RAPAPORT... Botswana Diamonds began  sampling operations on its Mobilong license in Cameroon. The junior explorer is gathering two 100 to 150 tonne samples from areas that were identified as potentially diamond-bearing. Results of the sample  will follow in the second quarter.

Secondly, in Zimbabwe, a small bulk sample is ongoing on diamond claims in the Masvingo area. Rio Tinto discovered diamond indicator minerals and kimberlites on those claims. Botswana Diamonds owns 49 percent of the Zimbabwe project while locals own 51 percent.  

In other company news,  Andre Fourie is stepping down as a  board director although he would continue to consult to the company. An additional director will be appointed in the near future. Kabelo Mohohlo was appointed to the board of Kukama Mining & Exploration and Atlas Minerals, the wholly-owned Botswana subsidiaries of Botswana Diamonds. Mohohlo is currently managing director of African Alliance Botswana Securities.
